We arrived around 11am on a weekday, and the restaurant was heaving! We had to wait in a queue for a while as you can't book a table in advance. The decor is very modern and the waiters and waitresses are very hipster. We were...More

Unique place to have breakfast or brunch. The dishes are tasteful. The coffee was amazing. Waffles are tasty as well. The only bad thing was the juice. But the staff are superb and make the best to accommodate you and make your experience excellent.
